No they do not. Ubuntu does not ship with v5 and does ship with v6
(which is why presently XaraLX does not work out of the box on Ubuntu -
and no error message to tell users why - for reasons as described in our
previous conversation about the user friendliness of Linux desktop).

In Ubuntu 6.06 'libstdc++5' is in main (which means it's officially
supported) and it's also on the installation-CD.  It's possible that
it's not installed by default though...
